As the date of the ICC World Cup draws nearer, there are an increasing number of concerns and uncertainty over Pakistan’s participation in the big event, which is set to take place in India.
Since the Indian cricket board had already decided not to send its squad to Pakistan for the big tournament, it is possible that the Green Shirts would not go to Pakistan in order to take part in the competition there too.
On the other hand, in light of the declaration made by Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari when he was in Goa, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is most likely to get approval from its own government to compete in the World Cup in India, according to sources who spoke to GeoSuper.tv.
During his visit to take part in the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) summit that lasted for two days, the Foreign Minister (FM) had stressed that “sports should be kept separate from politics and foreign policy.”
Earlier, a number of sources suggested that Pakistan’s World Cup match versus India will take place at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, which is located in the state of Gujarat.
A source said that “Pakistan may not agree to play against India at Narendra Modi Stadium due to certain reasons,” however they did not disclose any additional information on this topic until the official schedule was announced.
It is important to point out that the International Cricket Council (ICC) has not yet released a schedule for the World Cup matches as of this writing. This year’s huge event will be held in India throughout the months of October and November.

A trustworthy source inside the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has rejected allegations about their demand from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to give them a promise in writing that if Pakistan travels to India for the ICC World Cup, then they would come here for the ICC Champions Trophy in 2025. This demand was reportedly made by the PCB. The BCCI is responsible for controlling cricket in India.
